The nominations for this year’s Emmy Awards were announced today virtually. As television fans might have expected, HBO’s Succession has dominated the nominations this time.

HBO’s family drama was nominated under a whopping 25 categories, while Apple’s Ted Lasso and HBO’s The White Lotus earned 20 each.

Notably, Netflix’s South Korean drama Squid Game has become the first non-English language series to compete for the Best Drama Emmy, a category in which the series will compete with Succession as well.

.The Emmys once were dominated by broadcast networks and then cable, with the rise of streaming services changing the balance of power and perhaps the awards themselves. Netflix's “Squid Game” joining the Emmy mix is the result of streaming's global marketplace focus.

Meanwhile, The Crown, a series that dominated last year’s awards, wasn’t eligible for nominations this year since the series wasn’t televised within the eligibility period.

This year’s Emmy awards will be aired on September 12 on NBC
